This is an invitation to you, yes you, to submit to me your real and raw story, to be published as a guest post on my blog. As many of you know, I’ve been writing endlessly about my December breakup. And I’ve had to, for myself, to just get all the gunk up. It’s been so healing, and I’m certainly not done sharing about it! However, I feel the need to step out of myself a bit, and instead hear from you. Because honestly, it’s been so helpful to hear other people’s stories, as I navigate one of the most difficult times in my life. And we’re seriously all in this together, regardless of our relationship status. Life is hard, and we need each other. We need to hear from each other, and we need to support one another. And I want to facilitate that.
REAL AND RAW
I’ve been contemplating tweaking my tagline, to something that feels a bit more aligned with what The Goddess Attainable means to me. She started out as a way for me to just be myself in the real world, unapologetically. And when I created her, I had no idea how insecure I really was. And how, even though I am quite bold in life, there were still parts of me that I never felt comfortable declaring. So, the GA was the tool that helped me grow into myself. Gosh, I love her so much!
However, after several years of this now, she’s really taken shape. And I’ve noticed that she’s becoming something for others as well. At least, I hope she is. So, I have a kind of vision for her, and would like to declare it here.
I want The Goddess Attainable Blog to be a place where women (and men) go for their reliable dose of real and raw. Social media platforms, and people in general, are so good at presenting a facade to the world. And I can’t blame them, because I do it as well. Unfortunately though, some of the most beautiful, pristine, and perfect blogs, may very well be run by some of the most achingly sad human beings. I’m not judging beautiful blogs or social media channels. I’m just saying that we all hurt, and we don’t often share how we REALLY feel with the world. However, I think this is what the world could use a bit more of. And I would like The GA to be that breath of fresh air for those who want it.
SEND ME YOUR REAL AND RAW WORDS
So, in keeping with this theme, I would love to hear from you. The real and raw you.
I enjoy facilitating guest posts, and hearing from other women in general, because I find that through the whole process, I begin to feel closer to others. When I wrote my “Women Answer” articles (listed below), I had never felt a greater sense of community in my life. Reaching out to other women, hearing their true feelings, and seeing how they put their trust in me, was so amazing. And I guess, I’m just craving a bit more of that right now.
WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR
Firstly, I do think everyone’s definition of real and raw is different. So, I don’t want to put too many constraints on this. And the topics are really endless. In general, I would love a true story from you, or an article sharing your true feelings about something. It can be any topic, really. But, if you are wanting a bit of direction or inspiration, here are some interesting ideas to get your wheels spinning.
YOUR EXPERIENCE AT A GYNECOLOGIST APPOINTMENT
A SUPER QUIRKY THING ABOUT YOU THAT MANY PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT
AN EMBARRASSING MOMENT FROM YOUR PAST
SOMETHING, ANYTHING, THAT YOU PASSIONATELY LOVE, AND WHY
A FEARFUL EXPERIENCE
WHAT IT WAS LIKE GIVING BIRTH
These are really just some ideas, but please do not let this list limit you in any way. As long as you are being honest about something, it qualifies!
Please send me your submissions. And please keep the word count to under 1,500 words. Also, please include at least one image. I’m an image gal, and if you don’t send me images, I will select some stock images of my own to prettify things. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure they’re appropriate for your content. I would love an actual image of YOU to share as well, but this is not required. Please send your submissions (any format is fine) to thegoddessattainable at gmail dot com.
Please also share this far and wide!
I super look forward to hearing your real and raw tales!!! xo
